Here's my card
I obviously did not make a monochromatic card - LOL! I simply followed the sketch. I started out by die cutting a circle from white cardstock using a Sizzix circle die. I then stamped some birthday symbols using STAMPlorations Party Mates stamp set onto the circle, with Versafine Onyx Black. To make it more festive, I created masks with a ek success 3/8" circle punch and post it notes. I then added some color with distress inks (mowed lawn, peacock feathers, salty ocean, twisted citron, squeezed lemonade, carved pumpkin, abandoned coral, wilted violet) and the post it note masks. For the balloons, I used scraps of cardstock that matched three of the dots and die cut them using Paper Smooches Balloons and My Favorite Things Birthday Wishes & Balloons dies. For the balloons string, I used some upholstery thread. For the sentiment, I stamped it using Clearly Besotted's A Little Sentiment and die cut using My Favorite Things Skinny Strips dies. I adhered the pieces to a light gray A2 card base to complete the card.
We'd love to see how you're inspired by our sketch or to see your monochromatic card or both!
